Houston has two seasons
one is hot the other hotter.
Only thing that gets cold here
is Galvestonís sea water.

Iím reading all these poems
about the beautiful change of leaves.
And the way they flit and flutter
in the cooling autumn breeze.

Well you can all just go to hell
as far as Iím concerned.
While I sit in this rush hour traffic
and get a damn sunburn.

We run around in shorts year round
praying for a cold front.
Iím sorry if you donít sympathize
or think Iím being blunt.

But just once Iíd like to see
a flake of newly fallen snow.
Or maybe just a drop in temp
to feel a cool wind blow.

But I guess its just the price you pay
for living in the south.
So I will sit and dream of fall
and kindly shut my mouth.

Tell it like it is Lucie! ROFL!!

Don't feel all by yourself! We have two seasons here...warm and hot, with the occasional January freeze thrown in just to keep the weathermen drooling until the next hurricane season.

We only got two seasons here, too, Lucie....tourist and hurricane...both come with a lot of hot air. I relate to your situation.
